Queen Of Rockabilly

YES,YES, YES! Wanda Jackson is coming to Boston!!!!!!! Guess where I'm gonna be on October 7 ? That's right! I'll be at Johnny D's in Somerville to see the Queen herself. That's hockey night for me, but the boys are gonna have to find another goalie for that night. I've got a date with a Queen! Holy Crap, I can't wait!

Sunday Shopping

Okay, so I didn't make too much cash at The Alter Boys' show, but that didn't stop me from taking a Sunday shopping adventure. I scored a nice advertising card for my pin-up bathroom, a coupla cool travel decals that I can use on that 50's station wagon I'm gonna own someday. Last, but not least, I scored this killer baby stroller. If I didn't need to raise some cash, I'd hang this puppy in the garage, but I need cash, so I'm gonna flip it. Anyone else got any of these travel decals? I'd love to see them if you do.

Alter Boys Jalopy Jamboree

Last Saturday, I set up shop at The Alter Boys' Jalopy Jamboree in Natick, Mass. I didn't make much dough, but I got to see some friends & check out some cool rides, so it's all good. I also hooked up with my friend, Blake & brought in some stickers for inventory, Rat Fink, Lady Luck, Von Dutch, etc.

Vintage Tidbit Trays & Lazy Susans

This post is in response to one on the 1950's Atomic Ranch House blog about vintage tidbit trays. I may be a Hockey-playing Hot Rod-driving Alpha Male, but I'm also Italian & I can cook! Being the vintage guy that I am & knowing my way around a kitchen, I've developed an appreciation of Mid-Century kitchen gadgets & serving ware. Here is my small collection of tidbit trays & lazy susans.

Orange Airport Dragway Reunion

Set up shop at this show last week, but forgot my camera. It was a great show with some quality cars. Scored the cool Smith's Aplliance measuring glass at the show. It'll be great for measuring cocktails. Scored the Tiki stuff on the way home.

September Brimfield

Went to the Brimfield flea last Thursday & scored some cool stuff for my Tiki lounge. I usually go 3 days, but I'm really short-handed at work & couldn't get the time off.
